Balkans Beyond Borders Short Film Festival 2016
Our world is built upon diversities. Communities are built upon similarities. Identities are shaped upon perceptions. Perceptions on family, society, as part of a nation, as part of Europe, through culture. Being anonymous, unique or identical are all reflections on the same mirror. We want to explore how social divisions, ethnic identities, cultural orientations are defined at the level of the region, the city, the family and the individual.
- Can you identify yourself in the society you live in?
- Do you consider yourself identifiable?
- Are your fingerprints enough to guarantee your uniqueness?
- Are you one, no one or one hundred thousand?
The formation of “A” European Identity is now more than ever under question. The cities, the societies, the countries, the continent we live in are all part of a changing process. How the world perceives Europe differs – how Europe perceives itself also differs – how different generations perceive Europe (and themselves) also differ. The influx of migrants and refugees arrivals is dramatically affecting this scene. Can your shaped identity be affected? How do you feel with the perspective that you are presented with?
“Tag” yourself and the others in this changing world and share with us your short film!
Submission period until the 10th of July 2016
